From today’s TFN News Clips: “The fundamental dignity of every person, our right to be free, and the freedom to make moral choices are gifts endowed by God, our creator.

The freedom to marry became the law of the land, even here in Texas, in June 2015. But the fight for equality is far from over. Texas remains a state where LGBTQIA+ individuals can be fired from their job, denied a place to live, or refused service at a business simply because of who they are or whom they love.

From today’s TFN News Clips: “I found it offensive that she repeatedly brought it up. By the fourth time she mentioned it, I felt God wanted me to express how I felt about the matter, so I did. But my tone was downright apologetic. I said, ‘Regarding your homosexuality, I think that’s bad stuff.’” — […]
E-Mail Watch: Hate Crimes and Bestiality
Texas has an abundance of religious-righters who send countless e-mails circulating throughout the internets. We don’t want to give specific ranters publicity by identifying them, but we will occasionally post examples of their nonsense to show the kind of extremism that passes for discourse on the far right. Today we note an e-mail attacking proposed […]
